|Caspian Sea Hydrofoil|
|Route||Astrakhan to Baku to Tehran|
|Length of travel||1-2 days|
The hydrofoil itself is a rickety and unstable vehicle, making for an uncomfortable journey for Phileas Fogg and Passepartout. Alexander Sedlov, the captain, is an amateur sailor (albeit an energetic and enthusiastic one). He worked previously as a clerk until his cousin acquired the ex-military hydrofoil and Sedlov became its captain. He has hardly set foot on dry land since but, despite his devotion, Sedlov is still not much of a sailor. En route to Baku, Passepartout may wrestle the controls away from Sedlov and try to pilot the ship himself, but this will only enrage Sedlov and make him refuse to let the duo aboard to Tehran, in turn irritating Fogg. However, if Passepartout takes the controls on the way to Tehran, he can potentially sail the ship magnificently, embarassing Sedlov. When Sedlov holds his hand out for a tip, he can humour him or tell him to 'learn to sail' before disembarking, earning Fogg's respect.
Fogg and Passepartout can be thrown out and barred from boarding the ship again at Baku should they anger Sedlov.
